  • Patent number: 10697053
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provides a method for manufacturing a black plated steel sheet that is capable of more evenly blackening the area of the plated steel sheet to be blackened. The present invention relates to a method for manufacturing a black plated steel sheet by bringing a plated steel sheet with an Al- and Mg-containing hot-dip galvanized layer into contact with water vapor inside a sealed vessel. This method performs, in the following order: a first step for heating a plated steel sheet disposed inside a sealed vessel in the presence of a gas, the dew point of which is always less than the plated steel sheet temperature; a second step for evacuating the heated ambient gas inside the sealed vessel to make the pressure of the gas inside the sealed vessel to be 70 kPa or less; and a third step for introducing water vapor inside the sealed vessel in which the pressure of the gas therein has been reduced to 70 kPa or less to blacken the galvanized layer.

  • Patent number: 10611362
    Abstract: When a braking request is made while a SOC recovery switch is turned off, regeneration driving of a rear wheel motor is prohibited. In this case, a front wheel motor, the rear wheel motor, and an oil hydraulic brake device are controlled such that requested braking torque is exerted on a vehicle with regenerative driving of the front wheel motor and without regenerative driving of the rear wheel motor. When the braking request is made while the SOC recovery switch is turned on, the regeneration driving of the rear wheel motor is permitted. In this case, the front wheel motor, the rear wheel motor, and the oil hydraulic brake device are controlled such that the requested braking torque is exerted on the vehicle with regenerative driving of the front wheel motor and the rear wheel motor.

  • Publication number: 20200063666
    Abstract: A blowback air amount is an amount of air that is part of the air that has flowed into a combustion chamber and is blown back into an intake passage before an intake valve closes. If the blowback air amount increases, a controller causes a fuel injection valve to inject fuel by an amount increased with respect to a fuel amount for a case in which the blowback air amount remains constant. The controller sets an increase amount of fuel injected from the fuel injection valve to a greater value when the stoichiometric air-fuel ratio of the fuel injected from the fuel injection valve is small than when the stoichiometric air-fuel ratio of the fuel injected from the fuel injection valve is great.
